First Harvest!

Sunday, August 5th was our first harvest at the Come Grow With Us garden in the Key Coalition neighborhood East of 71hwy. Cucumbers, peppers, basil, sage, and radishes will be delivered to Thelma’s Kitchen to help feed the community. Thelma’s Kitchen is located on 31st and Troost, just blocks from the garden, and is the only Pay-What-You-Can restaurant in Kansas City. Customers may pay as little as $2 for a full meal or volunteer 30 minutes in exchange for a meal.


Habitat for Humanity Build Day

August 3rd was our first time volunteering with Habitat for Humanity KC. We helped erect exterior walls and most the interior walls of a single family home in Kansas City, Kansas. Construction work is no joke! We learned a ton about building and had the opportunity to use tools! Our next Build Day with H4H will be Saturday, November 16th. Please contact us if you’re interested in volunteering with our group!





Walk for Hope Fashion Show & Donation Drive

The fashion show benefitting Hope Faith Ministries ( @hopefaithkc ) gathered over 70 boxes and bottles of over-the-counter medications. Hope Faith is the only collaborative day shelter for homeless folks in Kansas City. OTC medications are on their list of urgent needs. PPAGKC sponsored the venue for the event which KCB volunteers organized at the Kansas City Masonic Temple downtown, just blocks from the shelter.

Along with cM, Lucia’s Sarto and Andrea Marie Long Designs dressed models whose hair and makeup were provided by students and instructors of the Mitsu Sato Hair Academy and MUD makeup program.
